Rosemary Garlic Lemon Roast Chicken Thighs

I got the recipe somewhere from the net and had been searching for it for half an hour. I can't seem to find it to provide the link ... Will provide the link when I am able to find it at a later date.
Yes, I've found the link and it's here .....

It's a recipe that resulted in a tangy lemony flavoured roast chicken. I liked the flavours cos' it's quite refreshing to taste a chicken with tangy flavours. I adapted it a little by adding in a tablespoonful of honey cos' I couldn't accept the fact that this recipe didn't have any sugars in it.


1 kg chicken thighs
3-4 springs of rosemary herbs from Cold Storage (use the leaves)

2 whole garlic bulbs, with skin, smashed
2 lemons, sliced into 8 pieces
2 tsp salt
1 tsp chilli flakes
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil


Wash and place chicken thighs in a roasting pan.

Add in all the above ingredients and mix them well with the chicken parts.

Arrange the chicken parts with the lemon pieces in between them.

Pre-heat oven to 220 degree C and place chicken in the pan to roast for about 30 mins.
Then turn down temperature to 200 degree C to continue roasting for another 30 mins.

Once the chicken skin turned nicely browned the dish is ready. Reserve some of the gravy to drizzle on the chicken before serving.

Serve dish with salad or white rice or mash potatoes.
